How Hugger Mugger Gives Back
Hugger Mugger was established in 1986 to help people in their practice of yoga. 35 years later, we still maintain the philosophy that it is important to assist the people in our community. Throughout the years, we have donated our time and products to a number of different charities. A percentage of all online sales is donated to a different organization each quarter. Thank you for the difference you will make when you choose a new Hugger Mugger product.
THIS QUARTER’S NONPROFIT: DIRECT RELIEF FOR INDIA
In 2020, a microscopic virus ground our world to a halt. While parts of the world are slowly recovering, some areas are still struggling. Early in the crisis, India seemed to be successfully controlling the spread. In the past few months, the Delta variant has devastated the country. India is now third in the number of COVID cases and deaths. Direct Relief, a charity dedicated to providing medical resources to doctors and nurses around the world, has been front and center in the fight against the pandemic.
Hugger Mugger has chosen to donate a percentage of our net profits from July through September to Direct Relief International. Direct Relief is rated with four stars—the highest rating given by Charity Navigator. A full 99.4 percent of its donations go directly to aid. Hugger Mugger’s donation will go to Direct Relief’s efforts to get vital aid to India, where our beloved yoga practice was born.
